cities. answers. >>> if the housing market is coming back, then you know that i think that the housing theme cannot be denied. despite the doubts that cropped up mid-week about this sector. and if the banks are making more loans, and you know i think that can't be denied, specifically residential mortgage loans, another one of my favorite themes for 2013, which i did not abandon during the week, then how about we talk about a crazy idea for speculation friday? how crazy? you know what? i think this housing rebound is so robust that it's time to consider buying a mortgage insurer. albeit only for speculation. this is speculation friday. and the one i've got my eye on is -- radian group. rdn for all you home gamers. the stock i told you years ago you had to get out no matter what. the mortgage insurance companies, as you might expect from the name, write insurance policies on mortgages that compensate lenders or investors if the borrowers default on the loan. so let's say you take out a loan to buy a house and put down 15%. the bank is required to go to the federal housing administration
york university. today's "wall street journal" questions the big bonus citi paid lew. sounds a lot like revolving door crony capitalism. that's right. back with us now is mike ozanian, steve mcmahon, and kay bailey hutchison. mike, i don't know this guy. i don't know. i don't know why nyu had to give him a special severance payment. he left voluntarily. i don't know why citigroup had to give him a bonus. he went to the federal government. the stipulation was if you go work for the federal government, we will guarantee you a bonus. not if you go work for the red cross or a non-profit. this sounds to me like crony capitalism revolving door. >> you know what? i have so much respect for tim geithner, that to me this seems like such a downgrade. it's very disturbing to me. it bothers me even more than the nomination of chuck hagel. it just seems like the president is totally disengaged. no one vetted this guy. it's just crony capitalism, as you said. and the president spoke so vehemently for so long that this was something he was going to put a stop to. >> that's a key point. he talked about
to roll out the first store in new york city. that's not for a while now. but more important they're spending big on the nordstrom website. nordstrom's is moving aggressively into mobile. last year, mobile accounted for a fifth of the total sales and it grew at a 31% clip last quarter. it can help the stock to continue to power higher in a world where everyone gets 3 and 4-g. the next gatsby component, how about ralph lauren -- maybe this isn't the best example. this is the premiere high end apparel brand. nothing says preppy like polo. they earned 240 a share. these companies are doing better even if their stocks aren't. and it gave very healthy guidance for 2013. this is what happens when you have a brand that's perceived to be on the high end of things. the money flows in because people cannot resist a little bit of conspeck shouse consumption. look at coach. they're a dog because they're widely perceived as having fallen behind on the style curve with the merchandise. i don't think ralph lauren will fall prey because they have staying power and they have some great merchants a
